Riding the Ducks!

We were excited to celebrate James' birthday by heading down to Branson for a Duck Tour!
They gave us our "wacky quackers" as we loaded the Duck. They are noisy "whistles" that sound suspiciously like a loud, obnoxious quack. Whenever we passed another duck on the road we had a quacking contest!
We went for a cruise on the lake...
And our Captain (Capt Crunch) even let Kayley take the Duck for a spin on the lake.
We saw the Showboat Branson Belle...
Our "Duck"

Just in case you wanted to know:

The DUKW (popularly pronounced "duck") is a six-wheel-drive amphibious truck that was designed by GM during WWII for transporting goods and troops over land and water and for use approaching and crossing beaches inamphibious attacks. The originalk DUKWs were built by Women! WAhooo! Quality Construction! That is why they have lasted so long....
